Kapil Dev has told Sreesanth that if he thinks that the BCCI has been biased then he has to cite enough examples to back his claims of facing rough treatment from the Indian cricket board. Sreesanth was accused of being involved in the spot-fixing scandal during 2013 IPL and was subsequently banned.
Sreesanth had been handed a life suspension on match-fixing charges and has since been fighting his case in the court. The BCCI, glued to its stand, have rejected the idea of removing the life ban imposed on the Kerala player.
"If he (Sreesanth) thinks that way (BCCI has been biased), then he has to give enough reasons to back his claim. Every person feels he should be playing for the country but at the end of the day, only eleven players are going to play," Kapil said as quoted by PTI.
On Friday, Sreesanth claimed that he would try to approach the Supreme Court to lift his ban and stating that he will fight for his right and wants to earn back his respect. However, Kapil maintained that it is Sreesanth's personal opinion.
"These are Sreesanth's personal views. I cannot comment much on his personal views," he added.
His allegations of discrimination against the governing body were reportedly rejected by BCCI Chief for Anti-Corruption and Security Unit, Neeraj Kumar.
"All I said was that there were 13 accused and why they were treated differently. This is the only thing I asked. I never asked to reveal their names. More than anyone else, I know much better about it because I was the one who had undergone the toughest possible time," Sreesanth had earlier said.
